Protan Flood Protection
"Traditional flood protection is expensive while at the same time society needs good solutions that minimise the serious damages associated with flooding. We believe that Protan Flood Protection, which has already been used in parts of Europe, is such a solution," says Protan CEO Erik Øyno.
Traditionally, flood protection requires a lot of resources to establish and has no reusable value. With Protan Flood Protection, you can establish flood protection of more than 100 metre with few resources and in just two hours. All that is required is a car, a pump and at least four people.
The flood protection embankments are made in 10-metre sections and can be re-used. The length of the modules can also be adjusted as required by arrangement. It takes approx. 20 minutes to install a module and connecting the modules is both easy and safe.
The modules for Protan Flood Protection are high-frequency welded and made of a durable PVC material. The modules have an effective dam height of approx. 70 cm and a capacity of 9,400 liters.
